Halloween quotes - William Shakespeare

Halloween is that magical time of year when it’s fun to be frightened. It doesn't matter if you're a kid or an adult, we all love to shut off the lights, curl up on the couch under a blanket, and turn on a movie that is either delightfully spooky or downright terrifying. We also debate thousands of scary costume ideas, trying to find the one that will make strangers and friends alike run the other way when they see you. (If you appreciate the classics, may we suggest going as The Shining twins?)

Yet one of the best things about Halloween is that, even when you're too old to trick-or-treat or you just don't feel like leaving your house on the 31st, there are so many other ways to enjoy the holiday. You can whip up spooky desserts, make creepy crafts, and carve pumpkins into works of art. To get you in the mood to celebrate this special day, we gathered the best and spookiest Halloween quotes — some of which have the power to strike fear into the hearts of, well, anyone. Keep reading if you dare.
